I had a prompt and enjoyable service through Castle Tours. We were a group of 11 people and this was a customised personal tour. The van and guide arrived on time and has been very flexible and helpful throughout..They have been helping and accomodating with small kids and the guide was very informative..They never made any fuss with timings nor stayed with us all the way through. The cost was very reasonable and could pay in any currency via portable paying machine on the day....Highly recommend...

A wondrous trip
Reassuringly The Guides really were excellent in every way welcoming,friendly,extremely helpful,informative,doing their upmost in catering for every wish & desire! You have to visit Izmir.i'd put it right at the top of your Turkish itinerary. A must do.don't pass by this opportunity if you can.you'll savour this beautiful city & its wonderful people.the sights,tastes,sounds & smells will captivate you.the iskender OR bursa kebab lunch was so delicious & my Partner even had a chicken curry at the same restaurant we stopped off at in Izmir which was so appetising full of fresh ingredients! you can even see some of the cooking being done right in front of your very eyes.there's a fair bit of walking involved but well worth it if you're able to manage it.the ferry ride to the other side of Izmir is so delightful.the Male Market Sellers are a bit of a pest though.it feels like every one is trying to persuade you into their business to spend your cash but hey that's part of the Turkey experience.keep moving on & it's fine.wallow in the splendour of one of Turkeys most fab cities
BEST TOUR GUIDE EVER!!!!!!
I cannot tell you what an amazing guide Yeliz is and the driver we had too was amazing. Yeliz was incredibly knowledgeable, spoke perfect english, was very charismatic. Honestly she became like our best friend. We wanted to take her back home with us she became like a sister to us. BEST BEST BEST EXPERIENCE EVER! was the highlight of our entire Turkey trip
Amazing sites & fun guides
Super tour with Castle Travel! Our guide Yeliz took us from Izmir to the three main sites at Pergamon: the Asklepion, the Red Basilica, and the Akropolis. She had all kinds of interesting stories to tell about each of the sites and really brought them to life for us. I would go on a tour with her again in a second. She was great to hang out with, as were our guide-in-training, Mustafa and our driver Umet. Pickup was right on time. Yeliz knew some great local places to stop for lunch and tea, and clued us in regarding local culture as well as the amazing sites of Pergamon. Highly recommended!
We were there 2 weeks ago Harun is a great guide. It was a great experience great location and we had a great time thanks to our guide. Thank you to Harun and our driver.
Charles J SJan 2022
Pamukkale is a fascinating place, I found its hot spring interesting. We wanted to do a balloon tour, but unfortunately it was not possible due to weather conditions. It was not possible to enter the Cleopatra pool either. Hierapolis was impressive. Our guide, Mr. Harun, was caring and communicative. If we come again, we will prefer the summer months...

Priene miletos didyma
Priene miletos didyma tour went perfectly. İt was a different feeling to see didyma appollon temple accompanied by our guide yeliz. Do not forget to eat fish when you join the tour.
Our experience with Harun touring Pamukkale was fantastic, he was engaging and had good energy and was very knowledgeable about the history of the region. Pamukkale was exceptional and beautiful, we dipped ourselves in the thermal pools and took lots of great shots and also swam in Cleopatras pool. Harun was proactive in helping us take some good photos for memories and we had more than enough time to have a worthwhile time. It was lots fun and the lunch was great, one of the best meals we had in Turkey by far.
Castle tour company
5 star. Wonderful tour group. We had a private tour that picked us up in Bodrum and took us to Ephesus, Virgin Mary house. Tour guide excellent and very knowledgeable. Driver excellent.

Safety in Greece
Greece is generally a very safe place to visit and the majority of risks are similar to other destinations, with pickpockets in the major cities (Athens) and taxi drivers willing to charge you extortionate rates from the airports to the city center. Other less common dangers include dodgy drinking water on many of the Greek islands, the possibility of spiked drinks at international party resorts, and heatstroke on unshaded, sun-drenched Greek beaches. If you board a private boat, always ensure there are adequate life jacket and be vigilant about your belonging when lounging on busy, popular Greek beaches, leaving passport behind in hotel safes. Potentially risky activities aren’t limited to diving and mountain climbing; getting behind the wheel of car in Greece also requires extra defensiveness and caution.
